You need to find another job. QUICK! What she's doing is, imho, blatently illegal and totally and without doubt, blatantely unethical. I don't know what state you're in, but of tje owner found out, I believe what she's doing is grounds for firing. If I were you, I'd call your state Labor board ASAP. There have been very LARGE companies, i.e. Walmart for 1, that have been sued big time for working people off the clock and not paying them. I know you need the money, but staying there under the present situation is asking for trouble BIG TIME.
Do you keep your children in child care over the summer, or do you make other arrangements? What do you look for in a summer program for preschool-aged children?

Are you KIDDING?! Of course you keep them in care! Unless you teach for a living, thereby having summers off, a vast majority of people work and can't stay home with the kids. This is not directed for the WAHMs, of course, but really! Our daycare had wonderful summer programs - they'd go swimming (she learned to swim that way), they went to King's Dominion several times (hubby even chaperoned a couple of times) and have all sorts of things. My biggest problem was when she aged out of daycare at 13. We sent her to camp, starting at 7, for several weeks, and that helped. But by the time she was 14, it was camp and stay at home. Neither of us could afford to stay home with her, so she had to stay on her own.
